Sewing is not the only crafty thing I do. For instance, I am an avid friendship bracelet maker, and for some reason I can't stop making envelopes out of everything I can get my hands on. (p.s. I love mail!)
Okay, and I cook and I bake too. Yum!
The Lumi Process is a revolutionary photographic print process for textiles and natural materials. The process is based on Inkodye, mixable, dilutable, water-based dyes, which develop their color in sunlight. Currently available in three colors: red, orange and blue.
Inkodye can bind to any vegetal or animal fiber, such as cotton, wool, silk, suede and wood. Once fixed, the color becomes permanent and can go through repeated machine washes without fading.
Inkodye’s light-sensitive properties open new possibilities for artistic and commercial uses:
- True photographic prints that show a range of tonality rather than half-tone patterns.
- Printing on delicate materials such as silk, suede and wool which are not capable of going through pH or heat-setting stages.
- Printing on rough materials such as burlap, jute and sewn garments, into recesses that typical screen-printing could not reach.
- Printing with sunlight, without the need for electricity or high-end equipment.
